The Importance of Good Office Lighting

Dec. 28, 2021

Good office lighting plays an important role in employee productivity. The right lighting not only reduces the risk of various health problems for your employees but also increases your company's productivity and safety. After all, it helps to create a comfortable working environment.


In this blog, we will discuss the importance of good office lighting so that you know exactly why proper office lighting is an essential investment for your company.


1. Save energy with the right office lighting

Good office lighting is important not only for the well-being of your employees but also for saving energy and money. After all, electricity is one of the major costs of providing office lighting, accounting for approximately 60% of your budget. Therefore, investing in the right lighting and technology is not a superfluous luxury. Today, you can use a variety of energy-saving technologies in your office. For example, LED lights are more often chosen.

In addition, more and more luminaires are equipped with sensor technology and modern light management systems. These technologies are used for presence and daylight detection. In the first case, the light detects presence or absence and automatically turns off when the work area is empty. This is an energy-efficient way to create the perfect lighting for employees. This is a technology that has long been used to illuminate aisles and corridors that are not frequently used. Since daylight is the ideal light source for the work environment, the lights with daylight detection go out when sufficient daylight is detected.


2. Good office lighting can be individually adjusted

This may sound strange, as we are used to general, non-adjustable lighting in our offices, but it makes sense. People have different needs, depending on the type of work they do and their age. For example, a 60-year-old person needs, on average, five to six times more than a 20-year-old to perform a task properly. Reading words on paper or working in a studio requires more light than simply working on a computer.


In addition, good office lighting is important in terms of ergonomics. Individually adjustable lighting has a positive impact on employees' eyesight, energy levels, and sense of well-being.


Freestanding office lighting is ideally suited as an adjustable light source. In most cases, it is a direct/indirect radiation device. This means that it provides the general level of light indirectly and the required illumination on the work surface in a direct manner. If necessary, additional desk lamps can further increase the brightness.

3. Maximum flexibility for users and companies

With the growing popularity of flexible desks in offices, companies have to consider the flexibility of their workstations. This naturally includes lighting as well. Good and adaptable office lighting provides the necessary flexibility required for a modern work environment. Therefore, a combination of freestanding and adjustable office lights is the perfect solution for flexible workplaces and dynamic companies that change their layout frequently.


4. Good office lighting is a mix of light sources

We have mentioned it before: good office lighting is always a combination of different direct and indirect light sources. With direct lighting, the light falls directly on the work surface, just like a desk lamp. On the other hand, indirect lighting can illuminate part or all of the workspace, such as ceiling lighting. Freestanding office lighting forms a perfect combination of both and is therefore very important in an office environment. We can conclude that good office lighting is very important for your company's efficiency and you can best achieve this by combining different types of light sources in the right way.
